African-Australian rockstar BLESSED has announced the release of his debut mixtape, Music Is The Medicine, due out next month! The announcement is accompanied the release of a new track, Bonnie Killed Clyde.
Exploring themes of betrayal, loss and longing, the track takes its conceptual inspiration from the infamous couple. In the accompanying music video, the musician and his on screen partner take on the role of the American criminal couple, set in the 1930’s. The visual was filmed on location in Murwillumbah, NSW.
With his debut mixtape out in a matter of weeks, BLESSED shared: On the mixtape, BLESSED explains: “Music Is The Medicine is a sonic piece on self love, growth, understanding and the generational hunger for hope. This mixtape is a multi-genre sequence of songs shifted into different frequencies that affect the body and subconscious mind in an enlightening nature. Music can match moods and influence positive or negative emotions. With this project, I want to use the ethereal feeling of sound alongside introspective and reflective lyrics to reach a broken generation.”
BLESSED will launch the release with a handful of exclusive headline shows at Sydney’s Mary's Underground. Taking place on December 10th, the musician will perform two shows taking place that evening.
Music Is The Medicine is out November 10. Watch the music video below.
